Let’s talk about The Color Purple (thanks, Whoopie, for an outstanding performance).
But seriously, the color purple is usually associated with mystery, magic, nobility, royalty, power, leadership, wealth, wisdom, spiritually and generally has a calming effect.
A little bit of trivia regarding the color purple and royalty. In the 15th century, the dye for the color purple was created and was so terribly expensive that only royalty could afford it. Julius Caesar proclaimed that only he could wear that color and Nero had anyone who was not royalty executed for wearing the color purple. Because of centuries of purple being associated with royalty, it became part of our culture.
So what are some big name companies that use purple in their logo? You may be surprised at some. There’s Yahoo, SYFY, Crown Royal, Welch’s, Hallmark, FedEx, Cadbury, the Baltimore Ravens, the LA Lakers, Taco Bell, Wonka, Monster, and NYU to name a few.
